ahead of this story, senator marco rubio write, "my hope is president obama will use his voice and influence to further this approach. however, if what he offers is a process for the undocumented that is more lenient, faster and unfair to those waiting to completely, it won't bode well for reform." striking a much friendlier tone on sunday, this is what senator mccain said of the president's effort. >> believe it or not i see a glimmer of bipartisan out there. >> we have president obama out there pushing a plan. does it help? hurt? >> i think it helps. i think it's important we all work to the on this. >> this will be the first time mccain has signed on to any major obama initiative, though mccain supported fiscal legislation, he opposed don't ask/don't tell and the new start treaty. no one is sure how speaker boehner proceeds, does he violate the so-called hastert rule again? by the way, as for what the president does tomorrow, don't expect specific legislation. there was some talk that they might do that. i'm told that the congressional hispanic caucus suggested to the white

with marco rubio, and he told me and other conservatives cheering for this bill to not be too exuberant because this is just the principle we're outlining today. the president could mess this up, the house of representatives has to mull this over. this is the first step of many that need to happen. >> why would the president mess this up? i mean obama seems to have made this a priority. he was out last summer with an executive order to let the kids of illegals stay and go to school. why would he screw it up? >> well, i think he's largely not led on this issue for his entire first term, larry, i think it's instructive that the democrats today chose to partner up with senate republicans as opposed to waiting to join on the obama bill. frankly, i'm glad to see that the senate is leading on this. people like rubio deserve a lot of credit. if republicans put their fingers in their ears here and become the hell no caucus, it's going to be detrimental to the party. and i think there are probably some people along the same lines in the house thinking about this for longer than we realize. and t

. chuck schumer, john mccain, dick durbin, marco rubio and bob menendez will discuss the plan. we'll bring it to you live. our first read team notes this is the first time senator mccain signed on to a priority of president obama. he takes the vision on the road to las vegas. but within the last hour, white house press secretary jay carney confirmed the president would not unveil specific legislation. the plan unveiled today would be the first major immigration overhaul proposal in six years but one border state democrat congressman castro of texas say that is the devil is in the details. >> we've got to make sure that those measurements, when we have determined that we have secured the border, that those measurements are objective. otherwise you will have fights down the road where folks are saying, well, wait a minute. let's not move on to the second phase of the bill because we have not first completed the first phase. >> besides border security, there's guest workers and employer verification and a path to citizenship for the 11 million illegal immigrants in this country. let's bring i

: today, marco rubio grilling secretary of state clinton about security for americans in libya long before the september 11th attack. were his questions answered by the secretary of state? we spoke with senator rubio a short time ago. >> the part i wants today focus on how it's possible you have an interview with the prime minister, and the consulate is not raised to an alert. air the secretary of state and your staff isn't coming to you and say we have a problem. 200 attacks and britain pulled out of benghazi and how weren't there discussion abouts these topics, the answer is either the meetings happened or they didn't and we have a problem in the state department how information flows. so to me, it's not just about assigning blame, it's figuring out what went wrong internally so this never happens again. >> did you get at that answer. i think what we found out is that secretary clinton met with the prime minister and the issue of security was not touched, but not deeply, again, i don't understand how that's possible. >> in october of 2011 or-- >> both, october of 2011 she visited libya a

marco rubio probably touched on it. i support and agree with the principles he laid out as far as earned legalization. making sure people don't cut in line but fixing the problem. we did reform in '86 and again in '96. it's a system that's broken that needs fixing. and many of us who have been involved in this issue over the years. immigration is a good thing. that's what america is. it's a melting pot. we think this is good. we need to make sure it works. i think there are republicans and democrats, many of us are talking to each other, that can come together with a good solution to make sure that this problem is fixed. once and for all. and i think those rubio principles do a really good job of adhering to the founding principles, respecting the rule of law, and respecting those who came here for a better life. >> and do you see that getting done this year? >> i do. that's one of the areas where i feel that i think the president has a big speech coming up. the question that many of us are asking, republicans and democrats, is he looking to play politics or does he want to solve the pro

to do something. seeing leadership from people like marco rubio i think really does give a lot of republicans who might have doubts otherwise a real chance to think again. >> the credibility, the aura, the halo that may be needed here. jackie, those eight senators we were showing are putting their bipartisan plan out the day before the president is scheduled to outline his immigration proposal in a speech in las vegas. what are you seeing in the timing? are they trying to triang late? >> it shows momentum on this issue. here's the thing which has been the hitch on a couple different things this year already. the house. the house is going to be hard to get this through the house. it's going to be hard to get some house republicans on board. but the fact you have this bipartisan group of senators and the president and everyone stepping on each other trying to get their plan out first, it shows momentum on this issue and it does increase the chance something could get done on this. >> getting it through the house. what do they need from the senate? 89-8 like we saw in the fiscal c

immigrants who are here? there's talk even among marco rubio how to get them legalization. they're not leaving anytime soon. no one expects that probably. so i think there's going to be in the principles a way to talk about a path to legalization number one and possibly citizenship. it's still a controversial issue, other issues such as verifying workers for businesses, those are the principles that are going to be talked about by the bipartisan group. there's a lot of hope that is going to be the kickoff to some legislative bill that could get support in the senate and possibly give some republicans in the house who might be willing to vote for it but looking for the senate to lead on this. i think this is a big week. >> lauren one more last thing to you. your latest article as well, maybe a name in there a lot of americans might not be that familiar with but he has certainly been playing a role in our politics because of how much money he's able to throw around. he's already talking about throwing some more money around in 2014. >> you're talking about foster freese who kept r

. on the republican side, john mccain of arizona, lindsey graham of south carolina, marco rubio of florida. pretty interesting group; right? pretty interesting political spectrum represented by these six senators. for the last few months we've been sitting down and working out a statement of principles about immigration reform. and today we unveiled those principles. we have a lot of work to do. we still have to write the law and we still have to bring it to the senate to be debated and to be passed. i don't assume for a minute that we're going to have every senator supporting it on both sides of the aisle. that would be too much to consider or to ask. but i know from listening to the speeches that were given by senator sessions of alabama, senator vitter of louisiana, they have many questions that they want to ask about how we approach immigration reform. so let me try, if i can, to speak to some of the basics that are included in our effort. first, when i listened to the senator from louisiana, he said that president obama had done little to enforce immigration laws. i think you will find for th

this path to citizenship would take. there are certain things that republican senator marco rubio wants in this, that they put in this measure. and so, you know, i think there would be a little bit of difference from what the white house would want versus this plan. having said that, i think that people who really want to get immigration reform done, and this is the moment, because by a 3-1 margin republicans lost hispanic voters in the last election, so people who want to get something done are saying to the white house, you know, step aside, let this get some velocity on its own, and then eventually you can get involved. but don't brand it as president obama's proposal. >> let's get reaction before the event comes out, a preview of the debate about to come. anna navarro is a republican strategist. dan stein is the president of fair, the federation for american immigration reform. dan, i'll start with you. this has been an issue which conservative republicans said no, anything that grants legal status or citizenship to someone who crossed into the country illegally is amnesty. is it a
